holi

MORE BYNazeer Akbarabadi

    qātil jo merā oḌhe ik surḳh shaal aayā

    khā khā ke paan zālim kar hoñTh laal aayā

    goyā nikal shafaq se badar-e-kamāl aayā

    jab muñh se vo parī-rū mal kar gulāl aayā

    ik dam to dekh us ko holī ko haal aayā

    aish-o-tarab sāmān hai aaj sab ghar us ke

    ab to nahīñ hai koī duniyā meñ ham-sar us ke

    az-māh-tāb-e-māhī bande haiñ be-zar us ke

    kal vaqt-e-shām sūraj malne ko muñh par us ke

    rakh kar shafaq ke sar par tasht-e-gulāl aayā

    ḳhālis kahīñ se taazī ik za.afrān mañgā kar

    mushk-o-gulāb meñ bhī mal kar use basā kar

    shīshe meñ bhar ke niklā chupke lagā chhupā kar

    muddat se aarzū thī ik dam lagā chukā kar

    ik din sanam pe kar maiñ rañg Daal aayā

    arbāb-e-bazm bhar to vo shaah apne le kar

    sab ham-nashīn hasb-e-dil-ḳhvāh apne le kar

    chālāk chust kāfir gumrāh apne le kar

    das biis gul-ruḳhoñ ko hamrāh apne le kar

    yuuñ hiiñ bhigone mujh ko vo ḳhush-jamāl aayā

    ishrat us ghaḌī thā asbāb sab muhayyā

    bahtā thā husn bhī us pe ek dariyā

    hāthoñ meñ dilbaroñ ke sāġhar kisī ke shīsha

    kamroñ meñ jholiyoñ meñ seroñ gulāl bāñdhā

    aur rañg bhī bhar kar mashk-o-pakhāl aayā

    aiyyārgī se pahle apne ta.iiñ chhupā kar

    chāhā ki maiñ bhī niklūñ un meñ se chhuT-chhuTā kar

    dauḌe ka.ī ye kah kar jaatā hai dam churā kar

    itne meñ gher mujh ko aur shor-o-ġhul machā kar

    us dam kamar kamar tak rañg-o-gulāl aayā

    ye chahal to kuchh apnī qismat se mach rahī thī

    ye aabrū parda hurmat se bach rahī thī

    kaisā samāñ thā kaisī shādī rach rahī thī

    us vaqt mere sar par ik dhuum mach rahī thī

    ik dhuum meñ bhī mujh ko jo kuchh ḳhayāl aayā

    lāzim na thī ye harakat ai ḳhush-safīr tujh ko

    azhar hai sab kahe haiñ mil kar sharīr tujh ko

    karte haiñ ab malāmat ḳhurd-o-kabīr tujh ko

    lā-haul paḌh ke shaitān bolā 'nazīr' tujh ko

    ab holī khelne puurā kamāl aayā

    qatil jo mera oDhe ek surKH shaal aaya

    kha kha ke pan zalim kar honTh lal aaya

    goya nikal shafaq se badar-e-kamal aaya

    jab munh se wo pari-ru mal kar gulal aaya

    ek dam to dekh us ko holi ko haal aaya

    aish-o-tarab ka saman hai aaj sab ghar us ke

    ab to nahin hai koi duniya mein ham-sar us ke

    az-mah-tab-e-mahi bande hain be-zar us ke

    kal waqt-e-sham suraj malne ko munh par us ke

    rakh kar shafaq ke sar par tasht-e-gulal aaya

    KHalis kahin se tazi ek zafran manga kar

    mushk-o-gulab mein bhi mal kar use basa kar

    shishe mein bhar ke nikla chupke laga chhupa kar

    muddat se aarzu thi ek dam laga chuka kar

    ek din sanam pe ja kar main rang Dal aaya

    arbab-e-bazm bhar to wo shah apne le kar

    sab ham-nashin hasb-e-dil-KHwah apne le kar

    chaalak chust kafir gumrah apne le kar

    das bis gul-ruKHon ko hamrah apne le kar

    yun hin bhigone mujh ko wo KHush-jamal aaya

    ishrat ka us ghaDi tha asbab sab muhayya

    bahta tha husn ka bhi us ja pe ek dariya

    hathon mein dilbaron ke saghar kisi ke shisha

    kamron mein jholiyon mein seron gulal bandha

    aur rang ki bhi bhar kar mashk-o-pakhaal aaya

    aiyyargi se pahle apne tain chhupa kar

    chaha ki main bhi niklun un mein se chhuT-chhuTa kar

    dauDe kai ye kah kar jata hai dam chura kar

    itne mein gher mujh ko aur shor-o-ghul macha kar

    us dam kamar kamar tak rang-o-gulal aaya

    ye chahal to kuchh apni qismat se mach rahi thi

    ye aabru ki parda hurmat se bach rahi thi

    kaisa saman tha kaisi shadi si rach rahi thi

    us waqt mere sar par ek dhum mach rahi thi

    ek dhum mein bhi mujh ko jo kuchh KHayal aaya

    lazim na thi ye harakat ai KHush-safir tujh ko

    azhar hai sab kahe hain mil kar sharir tujh ko

    karte hain ab malamat KHurd-o-kabir tujh ko

    la-haul paDh ke shaitan bola 'nazir' tujh ko

    ab holi khelne ka pura kamal aaya
